1957 Chevrolet Corvette
"Chevrolet finally got their sports car right for 1957, as the 1957 Corvette finally gained power to go along with its outstanding styling and road feel. Many Corvette enthusiasts consider the 1957 Corvette was the most aesthetically pleasing body style of the pre-1963 Corvettes, while others believe that it was the best styling of all time. And backing up that beautiful styling was the Corvette's first true powerful engine, a 283 cid V8...... At the same time, Chevrolet introduced its new four speed manual transmission, and the Corvette was on its way to stardom. When equipped with the 283 fuelie engine, 4.11:1 rear axle, and the new four-speed Borg-Warner T-10 transmission, the Corvette could accelerate from 0-60 in less than six seconds, and do the quarter mile in the low 14 second range at over 100 mph.

YAFA Pen and 1957 Corvette Collectible set $29.95 each
Here's a car that's been setting hearts aflutter since 1951, and shows no signs of slowing down, with the 6th generation being released in the 2005 model. The seven colors of these diecast models come in two versions of the roadster (please specify when ordering, if both show as in-stock): either with a hardtop in place, or as a convertible. The cars measure 5-3/4" in length and have doors and hoods that open.
This is the third of YAFA's collectible classic car and pen sets (following the Woody Wagon and 1965 Mustang). The accompanying Special Edition pen is a work of art itself. It comes stock as a ballpoint, but as it takes refills in the Parker-style, it can easily convert to a capless roller or gel pen.
Measuring about 5-3/4" with the point extended, the sinuous lines of the blue, brushed aluminum barrel is polished to a high luster. The triangular gripping section is a wonder to hold and behold, as flexible, tread-like blue inserts provide perfect traction. I found this to one of the most comfortable pens I've ever used. There's a nice heft to the pen, which seems to propel it across the paper while writing (I'm beginning to suspect that there's also a V-8 under it's hood), and the large piston-shaped 'clicker' atop the barrel functions with authority. The racing-inspired clip really sets the pen apart in a shirt pocket, and beautiful chrome trim highlights the pen throughout.
From any angle, this is the car that dreams were made of!

Warranties and returns
If an item proves to be defective, in most cases the manufacturer's warranty will apply. However, please email us first so that we can determine the easiest way to resolve the problem to your satisfaction. In the case of fountain pens -- which are a bit more individualistic than other writing instruments -- what may at first appear to be a defect (hard starting or poor flow for example), can in almost all cases be resolved with a few simple 'tweaks' to the nib, which we'll be happy to guide you through or perhaps suggest returning to us for adjustment.
Should you wish to return a non-defective item within 3 days of receipt because it doesn't suit you for some reason, again please email us and we'll arrange an exchange, credit or refund (minus any shipping/insurance charges), if the item is returned in an 'as new' condition. If you've dipped a fountain pen to try its writing characteristics, kindly clean off any ink residue prior to shipping -- to save us both a nasty surprise .
We want you to be happy with your purchase from HisNibs.com and hope to have you join the ranks of our many long-term, repeat customers!
